Deer control south jersey

One of the top things that inhibit a productive garden in South Jersey are deer, so it is important to find the best deer control South Jersey.

Most people who are growing a garden in South Jersey know that people are not the only ones who enjoy the delicious fruits and vegetables growing in the garden. Unless you have a way to protect your garden from animals, especially deer, they will find your way into your garden and harvest everything for themselves before you even have a chance to pick and harvest your garden for you and your family. Deer often sneak into the garden late at night and feast on crops, so it is important to have deer control in South Jersey.

With deer control, there are various ways to draw the deer in, usually with a sweet smell, and then frighten the deer so it chases the deer away from your garden. Additionally, the deer learn to stay away from your garden as it becomes a frightening place for them. Rather than enjoying the fruits of your labors and invading and wasting your hard work, the deer will learn to stay away from your South Jersey crops. Once you have set up proper deer control, you can build and nourish your garden without having to worry about invasions from unwanted animals.

Popular deer control also includes placing a repellant on your plants that is undetectable to humans, but awful to deer. These repellants can be placed on your plants or around your yard, and will not in any way damage the plants around your home, or cause any damage to humans. All it will do is actively repel unwanted pests. With this option, you can get rid of deer and grow your garden worry-free.

The climate of South Jersey is humid and subtropical. As such, a lot of different crops grow freely and easily. Some of the most popular crops include blueberries and cranberries, which are a delicious snack for humans and deer. Instead of making it a race between humans and deer as to who gets to the crop first, make sure to get good deer control South Jersey.

Opossums Removal South Jersey

Opossums Removal South Jersey

Call TermiGuard for opossums removal South Jersey. Opossums look vicious, and their resemblance to giant rats can be a little disturbing. But more than the appearance of them is the problems they can cause around your home. If you have possums living in your attic or just hanging out around the property, call TermiGuard Pest Services in the South Jersey area.

Opossums in the attic do more than make a lot of noise. They also leave behind an incredible amount of feces. They also have a habit of falling into the wall cavities where they get trapped and die. Before you know it, you are dealing with a serious odor issue and no clear way of getting to the cause.

Don’t wait for the odor to drive you out of your own home or feces to cause serious health problems. Call for pest removal from trained professionals. The best way to remove these larger animals is to trap them and release them in appropriate areas. We offer services in towns throughout South Jersey including Cherry Hill, Marlton, Voorhees, Sewell, Moorestown, Berlin, Mays Landing, Medford and Mt. Laurel.

Opossums also have a habit of eating whatever food is left out. This includes the dog or cat food that you might leave out for your pets. While this is more of a nuisance than a serious problem, it’s best to have regular opossum tenants removed from the property before they decide to set up house in your attic or in a crawlspace.

It’s important to leave the trapping and removal of opossums to the professionals. Wild animals are unpredictable, and they are almost always faster and more flexible than people think. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to be seriously scratched or even bitten when trying to move a cage that contains a frightened opossum. We have the safety equipment necessary to prevent bites, and we have the resources needed for finding a new home for the furry little invader.

The next time you need a wild critter removed from your property, call TermiGuard. We handle opossum removal South Jersey so you won’t have to.

Options for Geese Removal in South Jersey

Options for Geese Removal in South Jersey

Many people love to see geese fly over their homes and take delight in the birds’ calls. However, when landowners find that their properties have been inundated with flocks of these migrating birds, they need to consider their options for geese removal. Most species of geese are protected by conservation laws, so people cannot remove them in a violent or illegal manner. Therefore, they need to rely on the services of a professional company such as TermiGuard of South Jersey to get their properties free of these flocks in the proper manner.

Of course, the public might wonder what kind of nuisance these elegant birds cause. In fact, geese can cause considerable damage to a person’s property. Geese forage for bugs and other digestible foods in the wilderness. When they are on a person’s lawn, they may well damage gardens, flower beds, and even koi ponds as they look for food.

Geese also are very territorial, especially male geese. If the homeowner’s dog or cat wanders into a goose’s perceived territory, the goose will charge the animal and chase it until it leaves the yard. A male goose may be prone to bite, snap at, and likely grab hold of a cat or a dog’s tail or hind legs as it flees the charging goose.

In addition to the damage to the lawns and the danger geese pose to other small animals, flocks of these large birds can be very loud with their honking and calling to each other. Male geese in particular are very vocal as they attract mates. Their noise, combined with their frequent defecation on the property, may well prompt the homeowner to call TermiGuard to get rid of the flock immediately.

With that, TermiGuard of South Jersey uses a variety of humane techniques to persuade the flocks to leave. They might install bird wire or bird netting that can safely and humanely trap geese, which then allows for the birds to be picked up and removed to another location. TermiGuard can also use visual decoys to alarm the geese and convince the birds to locate to another area, rather than the homeowner’s yard.

South Jersey Ground Squirrel Control

By TermiGuard | Pest Control News

South Jersey Ground Squirrel Control

Sometimes known as chipmunks, these small- to medium-sized rodents can present homeowners with a host of problems that necessitate calling for professional ground squirrel control and removal.

Ground squirrels tend to be stubborn creatures and resistant to many efforts to remove them or deny entrance to homes. Additionally, once inside a house or business, they often give birth to litters in attics, crawl spaces, and even interior walls. They frequently cause an array of damage to the place where they live, such as chewing electrical cords and insulation, depositing droppings, burrowing through drywall or weakened wood, damaging plumbing lines, and spreading a variety of rodent-borne diseases.

Chewed cords and interior wiring can increase the risk or electrical fires. This is in addition to potentially costly damage to the exterior walls, roof, or foundation of a house they desire to inhabit.

Many unfortunate homeowners in the South Jersey area can attest to the tenacity and resourcefulness of these pests, especially those who chose to seek ground squirrel control only after a complete infestation was already underway. The better choice is to begin planning for their expeditious removal when the first signs of their habitation, whether inside or outside, is discovered. Then the homeowner has the best opportunity to prevent infestation and damage.

To determine if an invasion of ground squirrels is threatening a home, look for signs for entry along the foundation, at the eaves, or at any other vulnerable point in the structure, including garages and exterior doorways. Clues to look for include holes or signs of chewing, particularly where rodent teeth imprints are apparent. Droppings in attic areas or the sound of scurrying in the walls are signs of an advanced infestation of ground squirrels or other common rodents, including tree squirrels and others.

TermiGuard specializes in controlling a wide variety of pests common to this region of New Jersey, including ground squirrels. Utilizing time-honored and modern techniques for ground squirrel control, TermiGuard can rescue homeowners at any stage of their ground squirrel problem. Contact TermiGuard today if you are in need of ground squirrel control.
